Le Mans »

Dumas, Melo added to Silverstone grid.

Two of the leading teams on the grid have been forced into driver changes for the final round of the Le Mans Series season this weekend at Silverstone.

With the FIA GT Championship also in action at Brno, both Pescarolo Sport and Virgo Motorsport were left with spaces to fill for the season finale with part of their driver line-ups committed to racing elsewhere.

With Emmanuel Collard on duty with Prospeed Competition in the Czech Republic, Romain Dumas will take advantage of a break in his American Le Mans Series duties with Penske to join Jean-Christophe Boullion in the #16 Pescarolo as Henri Pescarolo's eponymous squad looks to secure 'best of the rest' honours behind the diesel cars in the LMP1 standings. Dumas raced with the Collard and Boullion during the Le Mans 24 Hours earlier in the summer.

Virgo meanwhile will bring in Jaime Melo for its home race as it seeks to defend the GT2 title, with Gianmaria Bruni away at Brno with AF Corse.

Should the Virgo Ferrari do enough to secure the title then Rob Bell – who will race at Silverstone instead of with CR Scuderia at Brno – would lift the title alone.
